The Training Center, IITM, conducted a 5-day National training workshop on Greenhouse gas measurements, interpretation and inverse modeling at IITM, Pune during 10-14 July 2017. The workshop included a series of talks and hands on training on measurements, data analysis and forward and inverse of long-lived chemical species in our atmosphere, e.g., carbon dioxide (CO2), methane (CH4), nitrous oxide (N2O), with atmospheric lifetimes varying from year to century. The measurement techniques cover laboratory measurements of air samples collected in flasks, continuous measurement on site and on board the ships and aircrafts, remote sensing measurements from upward looking ground stations and downward looking satellite sensors. It also covers advance top-down methodologies for estimation of regional sources and sinks of greenhouse gases using source-receptor relationships using measurements from fixed observation station. Resource persons were invited from JAMSTEC, ISRO, SPL, CSIR Fourth Paradigm Institute Bangalore, IISER Kolkata, IISER Pune and IISc including IITM. Scientists and scholars from various research institutes and academic institutions across the country participated in the workshop.
